Today I am showing you a wedding card I made a few weeks ago. I had found this paper in DesMoines IA at Archivers over a year ago and am just now pulling it out to use. I used ribbon from my stash as well as the rhinestones. I got out my JustRite stamper to make the monogram and then embossed it with silver embossing powder I then cut it out with my nesties. I also used my nestie for the scallop behind it.

Until next time...

Happy trails to you!

After my mom died, my friend Carolyn King sent me her new set called Warm Winter Wishes. She said all of the proceeds of this set go to the Alzheimers Association in honor of her grandmother. This set is dear to my heart as that is what my mother had as well. Here is the first card I have made from this set. Thanks so much Cammie!
I used PaperTreyInk's Enchanted Evening paper and their white paper as well. The snowflakes are embossed with a half and half mixture of Ranger's Gold and Snowflake Tinsel and they are also a PaperTreyInk set called Snowflake Serenade. I used my square Nesties to emboss the square, colored the snowman with my Copics, added the small snowflakes with a Judith Stubbie which I glittered with my Spica clear pen. The eyelet is from my stash. I hope you like this one. It is special to me.

Until next time, Happy trails

Ice Cream Maggie

I has been ages since I have blogged. It has been a very busy couple of weeks. My mom passed away on Sept. 29 so this post is in honor of her and her love of ice cream. She loved ice cream. She loved it so much that her great grandchildren called her Ice Cream Grandma. I think up until the last few months she ate a dish of ice cream every day of her life. In fact, I know that she occasionally had ice cream for breakfast, lunch and dinner. She was 92 years old and was very ready to die. That had been her wish for quite some time so how can we be too sad when we know she is where she wanted to be. Mom, I am picturing you sitting at an ice cream store in Heaven with all of your friends. Have a big Sundae for me!

Today's card is a Magnolia card colored with my Copic markers. The flowers are from Stampin Up! and just stamped in various colors. The butterfly is a Martha Stewart punch.

Until next time... happy trails.....
